We are very pleased to have begun a strategic alliance with the IBI Group of Firms.

This alliance is the result of careful internal consideration and planning with regard to the continuation of our practice and the provision of succession over time. Our clients can expect continued outstanding service provided by our senior team and talented staff. There will be no change in our leadership or senior management at CRJA.

President Harry Fuller, nine other Principals, the Senior Associates and all CRJA staff have established and maintained an outstanding practice of landscape architecture serving government, institutions, and private developers. The continuing presence of Carol Johnson is an additional inspiration to us all. The leadership and staff have all committed to continue the practice of CRJA in this strategic alliance, while also affiliating with the IBI Group of Firms. We fully expect that these leaders along with their colleagues will thrive through this strategic alliance and grow to assume roles of leadership in the ensuing years in the context of IBI Group. IBI Group is committed to the growth of the CRJA practice through the provision of additional professional landscape architectural resources (in accordance with regulations of the practice of landscape architecture in the respective jurisdictions), as well as complementing this expertise with professional services in Urban Land, Building Facilities, Transportation, and Intelligent Systems. With this affiliation, the total complement of professionals within the IBI Group of Firms is now approximately 2,700 people operating through some 85 offices worldwide. CRJA can now participate in projects of the IBI Group of Firms on this global basis, enhancing their reach in China and elsewhere.
